12k Gold & Sterling Silver Feather Earrings 1 7/8" By Lena Platero
Exemplifying an elegant yet effortless style, these gold and sterling silver feather earrings are perfect to wear with a casual-chic ensemble. The elongated oval shape of these earrings make them ideal for most face shapes, making the neck appear longer with subtle symmetrical framing.
The bright sterling silver tones of each feather earring will catch the light from many angles, highlighting the 12-karat gold fill and detailed etchings that make these earrings striking and unique. These earrings are crafted using sterling silver, and have a 12-karat Gold fill. These metals harmonize together to create a subtle glow that accentuates your features. They are approximately 1 7/8" in length and each pair is signed by the artist.
Designed by Navajo artist Lena Platero, these gold and sterling silver feather earrings represent a long-standing tradition of jewelry making in Native American culture. Dating back to the early 1800s, Navajo silversmiths crafted jewelry and other items from silver and turquoise, often making pieces that featured a single turquoise stone enclosed with silver wire. Like her ancestors before her, Platero creates authentic designs that combine traditional Native American jewelry making techniques with a modern sensibility, resulting in beautiful pieces with a personal touch. Platero also makes Navajo-influenced silver feather pendants, necklaces, rings, barrettes and bracelets.
In addition to featuring the work of Navajo artist Lena Platero, Southwest Silver Gallery showcases high-quality Native American jewelry from the Zuni, Navajo, Hopi and Santo Domingo tribes.
